Odiham gallery from the organ loft

The gallery at Odiham presented a challenge because it could not be assembled in the workshop and had to be fitted to a platform incorporated into the building, with steel supports to the floor.  The style is based on the gallery rails of the two galleries at the west end of the aisles, on either side of this one and at the same height, so that it appears to have been made at around the same time, the 1630s or 1650s, between which the west tower collapsed and was replaced in brick.  Nick made a collection of small panels, rails and balusters, with panels for the plinths and columns clothing the steel supports, coloured to match the originals.  Even an observant visitor might be surprised to know that the three galleries are not of one date.
